This is MY life

This post is sponsored by…

Actually, it’s not sponsored by anything. Unlike all my other social media feeds. Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Facebook? I’m seeing sponsored posts, promotional posts, adverts or rather insidiously “you might like this?” Coming my way.  I hate it.

Friday’s Rant: it’s not your news, stop sharing it first!

  Stop sharing news that isn’t yours to share on Facebook!  If your cousin has had a baby, it’s not your job to share the news to all and sundry on your Facebook, or theirs, until they’ve announced it themselves. The birth of a baby is amazing news but you don’t get to steal someone […]
